Welcome at Kanjer Papa (Hero Dad)
This Foundation is for dad’s with cancer who are fighting themselves through this horrible disease process; Heroes! To start with the person who initiated all this: Miriam Severijns and her kids.
The trigger to start this website is her husband; the disease of Frans van der Elsen. In June 2012 he got diagnosed esophageal cancer with metastases in the liver. Doctors gave him without treatment 3-4 months. With chemotherapy maybe up to a year. At the launch of this website it is end of February 2013. He survived up to now… What a hero!
Cancer is a terrible disease. You can hardly imagine what it does with you and with your beloved ones. Everybody knows someone with cancer directly or indirectly. We can all try to imagine what impact this can have in one’s live.
Therefore please share this website with your friends on Facebook or other social media.
What we also need is money. Or better: Frans van der Elsen needs it! Medical insurances in the Netherlands do not cover experimental treatments nor treatments abroad. You can be as big of a hero as you want, but you need money to be able to stun everybody.
